Don't worry.... woman shot through the leg was not I

I haven't forgotten about Italian Cliff Driving. I just haven't had a spare minute. Maybe I can squeeze it into my lunch break tomorrow.

Meanwhile, back in SafetyLand (here), an update on the public transportation:

All of a sudden the blanketing of the MAX trains with cops, security guards, fare collectors, and manners police seems to have come to a screeching halt. I haven't seen any of them for days. This is weird in light of last night's shooting at the 162nd Avenue MAX station. Does anybody know how that played out? I haven't been able to find any follow-up coverage in today's news, and last night all they knew was that a woman in her twenties got shot through the leg while crossing the road there.

What I'm wondering is: Did she know the shooter? Because if she did, this isn't going to scare me, since I'm 95% sure no one I know wants to shoot me. However if this was totally random, then I will be.... somewhat concerned that this can happen to anyone.

One consoling thought remains:
It happened late at night, and you won't find me roaming the seedy parts of town, or the public transportation, late at night.

So that means I'm safe, right?

Well, safer than if you were doing something really statistically dangerous, like driving a car :->
